11:19 pm
flooding along the bay. winds are northwesterly at 15 right now. steady at 15. few gusts higher than that and a few gusts this evening around 18 to 25. still breezy cold night and the power night gusts are a down deal and won't ramp up to saturday and sunday in the wake of this next storm. wind chill factors cold and mid- 20s. nice and clear tomorrow in the wake of this storm. obviously still putting down heavy storms across northern england and eastern canada and on the back side today and all of the cold air going in the area of low pressure, that is what generated the wind. that's one in a line of two storms. now all eyes turn to texas, the texas coast west of louisiana and this will be our next weather system just generating rain and it is that classic texas low setup where the system will be progressing in our direct as we work into the day tomorrow. temperatures looking to warm up pretty nicely tomorrow to 40. if you have snow packs for instance in westminster and
11:20 pm
carroll county and manchester, snow on the ground, you will get a little melting tomorrow but it looks fresh snow on saturday. one reason why, cold air availability which is a tough thing in late december in maryland. it edges further in and it won't be the case this time because we have the cold air in abundance and not above freezing in baltimore and bwi area on saturday. the storm keeps going out. the blustery winds are a done deal by morning. we are set for a nice dry day tomorrow and next moving to the deep south states and areas of big time severe weather in the last 24 hours will get more of that and then ramping up as it moves in our direction. at this point in time the storm will really reach peeking intensity after it starts towards maryland and off of the long island, new york coast. so i think we will get precipitation out of this. not the big lull that you get with some of the winter storms. talking about two different
11:21 pm
potential winter tracks. we will get the second track with accumulation. it looks like the rain-storm southwest of the immediate baltimore area, south of the eastern shore where the rain will be, a mix between those two lines and the snow tapering off by 2:00 on saturday afternoon. annapolis will be all snow. in the snow totals maybe one to three inch rain generally across the bomb area and one to two inch scenario and in the west, four to five inches including carroll county and right along the maryland- pennsylvania state line, could see more there. 26, mostly cloudy diminishing winds and 40s, not a huge deal
11:22 pm
weatherwise. let's go to the seven-day forecast because thing will change. snow moving in late saturday night, i'm sorry, friday night into early saturday morning through the day saturday. more wintery weather. expect a slick scenario in the morning. just a few inches is all it takes when it sticks. i think the roads will be treated through the day saturday as it tapers off to snow showers saturday and the saturday plans will go out well. just a matter of that saturday morning through noontime frame. that's a tricky time. >> pretty night a good night and morning on saturday but staying into 2 or 3:00. i think that will be ideal, let them treat the roads and it will be better. maryland already has an official state insect and bird and lawmakers want to create a state sandwich. eastern shore republican richard cullburn has a measure to make the soft shell crab the
